Why cycling is the solution
Cycling is incredible; it will help improve so many aspects of your life.
It will greatly improve your physical and mental health as cycling is excellent exercise.
It may save you money if you switch to making journeys by bike instead of by car. And by investing in cycling schemes it benefits the overall economy as the excellent benefit-to-cost ratio means it saves more money than it costs.
Environmentally, it helps address problems like air quality and pollution.
It helps you meet the recommended physical activity guidelines, improves your wellbeing, and reduces the risk of premature death and ill-health. It can also fit into your daily routine better than many other forms of exercise because it doubles up as transport.
